Who would be a giant according to Neolithic myths? Here are two charts (and some text on the issue) that show average height of Paleolithic humans by region and one that shows modern average heights by country (you can fit the region into this on your own).
average height worldwide was pretty constant.


Then, did giants interbreed and cause the average height to jump in certain regions?


So, had someone from the Dinaric Alps visited Tiwanaku, Bolivia 10,000 years ago, for instance, I would assume the native peoples of that area would consider them to be giants. What do ya think?
